I figured. 

But hard-coding formatting inside `title` is a blunt instrument. It's not 
restricted to the TOC, but instead manifests globally. And, because it's 
implemented with "font-weight: bold" and not a CSS class, it's difficult to 
manipulate from outside (unless you employ the Hendershott Method)

Forbidding `title` formatting entirely is not the answer. For instance, "How to 
Design Programs Teachpacks" should rightly have non-negotiable italics; "raco: 
Racket Command-Line Tools" should have non-negotiable code formatting for 
`raco`. In those cases, formatting is intrinsic to the meaning.

But bold has no semantic purpose — it's just an emphasizer. And there are 
better ways to emphasize things in the TOC (e.g., page position, whitespace)
